Lexington Community Fights For A View

Members of the Lakeshore Village Homeowner's Association said they want to stop a six-story apartment complex from being built in their neighborhood.
A Lexington community said it's fighting for its right to a view Monday.

The Lakeshore Village Homeowners Association said its trying to stop a six-story apartment complex from being built in its neighborhood.

According to members of the HOA, there aren't any buildings of that size within a three square mile area of their neighborhood.

"I think that's a  little out of character for our lifestyle here in Lakefront community," said resident Patricia Hughes.

Members of the HOA said the structure would block their view of the lake, which is what they moved there for.

"We bought our townhomes here--most of us--because of the lake. And because we wanted that view," said Lakeshore Village HOA president Pat Robinson.

HOA members also said the influx of people would increase traffic by at least 200 cars twice a day at rush hour, which is already impeded by a lack of routes into the community and Henry Clay High School traffic just down the road.

They added that they think a three-story structure wouldn't cause as many problems, and would agree to that.

Representatives of Lakeshore Apartments Associates--the company that's building the complex--said they were too busy to talk to us.

HOA members said they hope to be able to do some talking at the Lexington Urban County Government Planning Commission meeting on Thursday.
